    looks as fake as china goods...

    but PS isnt the problem, it's the models... not sure how your modelling air-brush skills are but smoke streaks or 'battle-damage' would give a more realistic feel...

    I kinda find the background in this a little too distracting as the edges of the rocks seem to interfere with the lines of the model.

    if you can't do it yourself, how about going into one of those model hobby shops and make a deal with the people there? if they would be interested in airbrushing battle damage and letting you photograph after. i'm sure they all love a good challenge.

    I think part of the problem is not having any photorealistic pictures or footage to compare with. The only ones of these mechas are either cartoon CG or illustrations.

    Even with battle damaged models everything will just look toyish.
